Pirates in Love

I think a couple of weeks ago I saw a press release about Pirates in Love coming out.

I worked on this a little bit back in January...
I don't think my translation was used in the actual game
(or maybe it was? If someone could find the "have a blast" in the cannon, please let me know)
because they said I was translating text for their presentation or something.

Anyway, you can get the app on iTunes.

Honestly, after translating Flesh & Blood (a yaoi light novel that was never published),
I don't think I would ever want to live like a pirate.

So this game is not really for me...

But if you're into pirates, please check it out!

Finished Shugo Chara Chan #1

I finished Shugo Chara Chan #1, the spin-off manga series to Shugo Chara.

Shugo Chara Chan is a 4-koma manga,
and like the other 4-koma manga I have worked on in the past
(Sunshine Sketch, Shoulder-a-coffin Kuro)
there are a lot of translation notes.

The manga artist for Shugo Chara Chan seems to be a foodie,
so there are a lot of references to food.

Which is fine with me, because I like food.

There is also a section where the Guardian Characters visit other Nakayoshi manga characters
(these manga are drawn by the various manga artists)
such as Hell Girl, I Am Here!, and Arisa.

It was fun looking up the storylines of these other manga.

Please look for Shugo Chara Chan #1 when it comes out later this year!

Hidden References in Love Hina

Love Hina Thumb

I finished Love Hina volumes 4-6, which will be Love Hina Omnibus Edition volume 2.

I included some hidden references that will not be explained in the translation notes.
I discussed this with my editor, and we both agreed that
since the Japanese version has a lot of references that are unexplained,
the English version should have some too.

But I will give a hint and show which pages they are on...

Please let me know if you notice it when the English version comes out!

The second one is not really a hidden reference, but a semi-private joke...
To myself...
